Connections: Exploring state gun laws and activists' perceptions on personal gun ownership

We're joined by members of the local chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense to discuss concealed carry and related gun laws in New York State, as well as their thoughts on their own personal ownership of guns. Cha Ron Sattler-LeBlanc and Toni Nelson each lost multiple family members to gun violence. While they both advocate for responsible gun ownership, they have different perspectives on if they themselves want to own guns. They share their stories and discuss how the tragedies in their lives shaped their opinions about gun ownership.

We also break down concealed carry laws, new state laws on gun storage, a ban on 3D-printed guns, and more. In studio:
